There's still some yellow discoloration that you can see on her nose. Also if we zoom in a little closer, we can see that there are probably the remnants of a scar here.

Shortly after Wilson was discovered with multiple gunshot wounds at a friend's home in Austin, Texas, on 11 May 2022, Ms. Armstrong fled to Costa Rica, where she dyed her hair and paid for plastic surgery, especially a nose job. Later, when Austin detectives interviewed their key suspect three days after her death, they discovered her to be angry and evasive.
According to police testimony, Kaitlin Armstrong turned her head and rolled her eyes in an angry manner when detective, Katy Conner asked her on 14 May about her boyfriend, Colin Strickland, spending time with Ms. Wilson on the day of her murder 72 hours earlier.
Austin police detained Ms. Armstrong after discovering that the real estate agent and part-time yoga instructor had an outstanding misdemeanor warrant for theft of services. She was shown video surveillance footage of her black Jeep Cherokee parked outside the house where the victim was killed. According to police, she was still and guarded and eventually nodded when told that "maybe you were upset and just in the area."
During the inquiry, detectives discovered that the arrest warrant was invalid, and they were unable to hold her. Authorities would not see Ms. Armstrong again for another 43 days, when she was arrested at Don Jon's Surf and Yoga Hostel in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica, by agents assigned to the tourist police division of the seaside resort town.
Later, Kaitlin Armstrong was charged with first-degree murder in Wilson's death. She is also facing a felony charge in connection with her alleged escape last month. Though the manhunt is over and her trial began on November 1, questions remain about how she managed to elude capture for nearly seven weeks, appearing to be several steps ahead of the law enforcement agencies attempting to arrest her.
